“To the woman picking up this book looking for truth to nourish her soul, strengthen her resolve, encourage her heart and, perhaps, lighten her step, I wrote this Bible study for you.”

Excerpt from Week 6 Day 3

Be gentle. The Greek word for gentle is not weakness. It is meekness, which expresses “power with reserve.” (visit http://biblehub.com/greek/4240.htm) The classical Greek word for meekness referred to a horse who had been tamed and bridled. This gives us a picture of power under the control of a master. Jesus is our master! When you are in a tough situation, it’s easy to allow anger to seethe underneath the surface. It’s easy to laugh at the other person, to yell at them, or just ignore them. Are you gentle in your approach to your relationships? This does not mean pretending you aren’t hurt. This does not mean brushing your feelings under the rug. It means ask the Holy Spirit to give you gentleness. It has to come from him! Ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and revelation on this. Let Jesus be the master of your emotions and reactions. Jesus’ transformation of our character is a refining process—the process of “meeking.”

Be patient. HELPS Word-studies found at biblehub.com says:
“… the word for patience in the Greek, “embraces steadfastness and staying-power. If in English we had an adjective ‘long-tempered’ as a counterpart to ‘short-tempered,’ then makrothymia could be called the quality of being ‘long- tempered’ . . . which is a quality of God …”

THE BIBLE VS GMOS~ From Revealed in Ephesians- The Mystery of Who I Am in Christ

“How does this Word food work? In Luke 8:11, Jesus describes the Word as a seed—true raw food eating. You do not get more pure and organic than studying straight from the Bible. Also, God says of his Word, in Isaiah 55:11 NKJV, “It will not return to me empty.” We have all heard about bio-available food. The Word of God is spirit-available! It is ready to be absorbed by your inner “person” as soon as you take it in. So, whether you have time for your perfect quiet time or just a short snack, God will nourish you with His Word. Throw that perfection out the window! You were made for God’s Word. It is your literal sustenance. Just pick it up and start fueling your spirit!

The goal of this study is to help you become more comfortable in reading the straight up non-GMO Bible.
That’s right! Most women know what GMOs are and refuse to buy food that contains them. What are GMOs? Genetically Modified Organisms. A large corporation decides to modify the wheat, corn or other food to be able to produce it in large quantities and to make it look better in order to make more money. Strawberries in the grocery store are now much larger than the ones our grandparents remember eating. The massive chicken breasts we buy in the meat department make one wonder if that bird on steroids looked like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.”

Now, stick with me here.

While Christian books are very popular with Christian women, and book studies abound, I assert that if you are trying to survive spiritually from what another author has put out there without also being in the Word of God, you are very likely surviving on spiritual GMOs, and not knowing it. Spiritual GMOs can do everything, from under-nourishing you—the powerful faith-building parts are taken out—to withholding important nourishing truth from you—not telling you about spiritually toxic things you need to eliminate from your life by the power of Christ. They sugar coat sin so that it looks acceptable. It is easy to sell books about God when you do not want to talk about sin. Some even introduce destructive and twisted heresies that could completely derail someone’s faith! WOW!

This is NOT a petition to stop doing book studies. This is one woman to another asking you to take a chance to learn to become comfortable feeding yourself and your family straight from the Word of God.
If you have been taking in good spiritual nutrition, you will definitely know when you pick up a book that is a GMO. You spirit will reject the lies, in much the same way a well-fed body reacts strongly to foods that it should not be eating. Also, just like food preparation, the more we learn to cook or bake, the more comfortable we are doing it. The more we study God’s Word, with others or alone, the more comfortable we will be doing it.

You do not have to be perfect. God’s Word is perfect. It is powerful to work in your life just when you need it. Simply trust that God has got you. No fear! His Word is there to fill you up with His love and His truth and to give you power to overcome your greatest fears, girlfriend!THE BIBLE VS GMOS~ From Revealed in Ephesians- The Mystery of Who I Am in Christ

"This book is a must-have for women of all ages interested in going deeper in their study of the Bible. As a senior citizen woman and a seasoned Bible student/teacher, I was amazed at the fresh insights and understanding the Lord revealed as I read through this book. I was especially touched by the Greek word studies and the section on how understanding the life of Queen Esther deepens our understanding and application of being warrior princesses. The memory verses and abundant examples of praying through various scriptures in Ephesians will encourage and transform many. Each day's study ends with practical suggestions for applying that lesson to women's daily lives. I'm grateful for the opportunity to read this book and look forward to using it in the next Bible study I lead at our church."   -DuAnne Thrush, women's ministry council leader, women's Bible study teacher, and worship team member, Crossroads Brethren in Christ Church, State Line, PA

Week 6- Confidence in Prayer and Our Place in the Body of Christ.

Week 6 Day 1 of Revealed in Ephesians: How can you have confidence in prayer? If I am a sinner who needs Jesus, how can I have confidence when I go before the Father in prayer? Listen to Briana share a very personal testimony about how through confidence and unity in prayer God provided her family a home in a special way.
Week 6 Day 2 In today’s study, Briana digs deeper into confidence in prayer. Learn more about how great our Father is and how willing he is to provide for our needs according to his riches and glory. He can do more than you can ask or imagine. Learn about how to overcome rejection by a Father and to begin to trust that God, our good Father wants to give you free access to his grace, mercy and power.
Week 6 Day 3 In today’s study, Briana teaches on the power of God in the body of Christ. How do we live in the fullness of God’s power? How does God work to divide his gifts up in the body of Christ? How do we experience more of God by working with each other in love? How does this apply in marriage? How can we be rooted and established in love together? How can our individual weaknesses in marriage reveal the glory and grace of God?
In Week 6 Day 4 Briana discusses how spiritual discernment in relationships works. Learn how fear and assumptions can cloud your spiritual discernment. When Ephesians says we are to be humble and gentle, what does that look like, if you are a strong personality? What does gentleness and meekness really mean? 
Week 6 Day 5 Join Briana today to learn the difference between false and true unity. We live in a world full of division and distress. The Body of Christ is intended by the Lord to be united. Are there any issues that we should ever allow to divide us? You may be surprised by the answer that scripture gives us. 
Jesus said in Matthew that there would be a great falling away that happens before the coming of Christ. Find out about how the current apostasy is drawing a supernatural line in the sand that God does not want us to cross. How do we take a stand for the truth, but still stand on the side of love? Find out!

Week 7 – Walking in Truth and Avoiding Deception- How the Body of Christ is designed to keep God’s people from being deceived.

Week 7 Day 1 Today, Briana covers how we can trust our Bible translations. Has the Bible been watered down over the centuries? Are there new things in the Bible that were added over the years by people like Kings and Queens of Europe to control people? What are the differences between NIV, NKJV, NASB and other versions? Also, look into what heresies are being introduced today into many churches. How do the five fold ministries in the church protect the people from these heresies? Take care to examine whether or not your church teaches a heretical approach to the grace of God.
Week 7 Day 2 Is prophecy still a legitimate gift? In today’s episode, Briana unpacks questions that many people have about the offices of the church, one of which is prophet. How can you tell a false prophet from a true prophet? Should I be scared of prophecy? How do I guard myself against people and ministries that are misleading and false? Does God want me to receive the gift of prophecy? How would that look? 
Also, Briana covers the office of evangelist. Is leading people to Jesus a spiritual gift? Should everyone be doing it, if there is a specific office of evangelist? Listen in to find out! 
Week 7 Day 3 Dig in further to learn that the Body of Christ is not a business. It is organic and functions with everyone doing his or her part. Pastors and paid staff are not the only ones God expects to work in the kingdom. A healthy functioning body ministers as each part does what God calls it to do. Briana shares another miracle story where someone followed the Lord’s leading and intervened to save her family from a financially difficult time.
Week 7 Day 4 Find your place in the Body of Christ. Find belonging. You matter! God has a specific call on your life. Discover how Christ leads us out of captivity into belonging and calling. Jesus gifts all of those he sets free. There is no one who is without a purpose. Do you know what God’s purpose for you is? 
The Greek in this passage teaches that we each bring something to the party that makes it a LAVISH event. The Body of Christ is full of so much potential. God uses each of us to strengthen each other and to make everything we do together in Christ a LAVISH event. What are you bringing to the party?
Week 7 Day 5 Cleaning out the closet of your heart. Imagine your old wardrobe from 10 years ago, even your favorite jeans or shoes wear out, get too small or need an upgrade! In the same way, we need to make sure we are clothing ourselves with God’s newest fashions for our spirits. Clothe yourself in righteousness. Put off your old self and put on your new self in true righteousness and holiness. Because we are created in God in true righteousness and holiness, we need to put on his ways. Briana gives examples of what this looks like in our relationships. What does it look like to put off anger through prayer? What does it look like to walk in the power of the newness of the Holy Spirit? Let’s check out Ephesians to find out!

“What a great time the Lord gave us through Briana Nei as our ladies’ conference speaker on Nov. 3, 2018! As a mother of three, Briana engaged well with women at our conference, a very relatable speaker for all our women–the young moms, single women, grandmothers, widows, and single moms. Women who’ve attended most of our conferences over the past 8 years were overwhelmingly enthusiastic about this speaker being the best we’ve ever had. Briana presented three sessions, taken from Ephesians, followed by small group sharing around questions she’d prepared so that women were interacting with her teaching throughout the day. At the end of the day, she led in a time of prayer response when a number of the ladies came up for specific, personal prayer by Briana and her team and experienced God’s fresh work in their lives. Our ladies were definitely taught, encouraged, and challenged in their understanding of their identity in Christ. We look forward to using her book on Ephesians in our ladies Bible studies in the future and would definitely invite her to speak at our conference again.”
